Teenage pregnancy quango gets the chop

15th October 2010

The Teenage Pregnancy Independent Advisory Group (TPIAG) is among five education quangos that are being scrapped by the government.

The group, which advises ministers on teenage pregnancies, is to go along with the board of Teachers TV, Becta - which promotes technology - the General Teaching Council for England and the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency. The TPIAG was set up in 2000 to advise the government on how to cut teenage pregnancy and ensure teenage parents continued with their education for a fixed 10-year term.
